It's time we all focus on queers
To keep us from seeing our fears
Man marries Man
Is part of their plan
To embrace the sharp pain in our rears
The Limerick King
Yesterday two things happened in North Carolina:
1. BAC held it's Annual Meeting in Charlotte and over the howling protests of an angry mob, including irate shareholders, awarded an obscene bonus package to a CEO totally undeserving of same for a myriad of reasons, including his intimate involvement in the creation of America's Mother of All TBTF shit lockers.
2. The people of North Carolina, in their infinite wisdom of the meaning of privacy and personal liberty, decided to pass a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage.
As a result, Barrack Obamney announced his support of same sex marriage and Mitt Obamney voiced his continued opposition. The line has been drawn in the sand.
Those naive enough to think the withdrawal of Rick Saint Moron would clear the way for a rational rather than religious public debate of the reasons behind the sad state of the American economy, will be sadly disappointed.
The same sex marriage issue will generate an abundance of distraction running straight into the Democratic Convention, which will be held...where else? In Charlotte.
So which city gets rewarded with the substantial economic shot of the Democratic Convention? BAC Gay Basher Town USA.
What a nice piece of misdirection. Pure coincidence? Perhaps...then the following won't surprise you either:
FEB 12, NYT--The Human Rights Campaign, a national organization that promotes equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people, has persuaded Lloyd Blankfein to be its first national corporate spokesman for same-sex marriage.
Persuaded? As I have said before, in matters of crony capitalism, nothing happens by accident.
